bunch at SSHS and will do all we can to help you.
Big senior students are one of the scariest things to people going
into high school. Some of them seem huge! Actually, our Seniors are great, and
can be really helpful when you need them.

Most of you
will be very excited about getting a brand new uniform and will want to buy it
as soon as possible. Just keep in mind that we are all growing very quickly.
Leave purchasing your school uniform until late this year or mid-January next
year. For more information about uniforms visit the Uniform Shop page on this
website. At SSHS we wear our uniforms with pride.
thought about how you are going to get to school?
If not, it would be a good
idea to sit down with your parents/caregivers and have a chat about how you
will do this. Consider catching the bus, walking, riding your bike or getting a
lift to school. Directly in front of the school is a very busy pick up and drop
off zone, so perhaps plan a meeting point in a less busy spot. Make sure that
you will get to and from school safely!
